ARLINGTON, Va. - The Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) and American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) jointly hosted the fifth Energy Efficiency Summit. The summit provides an open discussion forum for HVACR and water heater manufacturers, environmental advocates, and utility representatives.

According to AHRI, this summit covered a wide variety of topics, including the future of energy efficiency standards, the development of residential and commercial building codes, incentives for residential equipment, and efficiency standards for commercial HVACR and water heater equipment.

AHRI said the summit featured a number of open discussions which led to the development of three working groups: one dedicated to energy savings through incentives, specifically targeting the residential installed base; the second dedicated to solving issues faced in the development of building codes; and the third dedicated to more effective labeling of equipment.
